Album Review ~ Nobody Loves Me Like You Do By Chris Tomlin

Category Religious/Christian Genre Contemporary Praise/Worship Release Date August 17, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review This softly worshipful but powerful praise & worship shows a heart that displays gratitude and satisfaction toward God with the finest of music, lyrics, and passionate voices. There’s a maturity to the tone of the music that reflects the truth that Tomlin has been doing this for a while; but this is also beyond fine-tuned skill; this is a person that has grown in their relationship with God. It is seen in the genuineness of his heart throughout the EP. It can’t be explained. Only heard and perceived. For an album that could easily lead you into a mode of worship, pick up Tomlin’s Nobody Loves Me Like You Do.

The anthem-like Now or Never echoes a heart that celebrates romantic love, the gratitude of living in the moment and enjoying every bit of it…just as God would have us do!

Song Review ~ White Noise By CASS feat. Chris Howland

Category Religious/Christian Genre Pop/Rock Release Date August 10, 2018. Rating 4.5 Stars Review CASS’s White Noise is a love song of appeal to God, showing the singer’s passion, zeal, and need for a relationship with God as their lover. This is what it means for Jesus to be the Groom, and us, the Bride, an aspect of the Christian faith not emphasized enough. White Noise shows the earnest pursuit of love and intimacy with God, which is a desperately needed message in music today.
